Witches hat on a hatch?

I've been looking at the witches hats on the transom end of the underdeck trunking of the Ballistic and I don't like them much. The holes are small that the cables go through and very awkward to pull anything through. It's got 2 that are quite close together.

Has anyone ever tried putting a small deck hatch in place and fitting the witches hats to that to make access etc easier?
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

Doesn't sound much different from fitting glands into a gland plate on JB's, can't see why it won't work as long as you have enough slack to open the hatch!
